Rob Gronkowski Week 8 Outlook - Buccaneers at Giants

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 9:38am EDT

It appears we have Gronk back in our lives. He's now totaled at least six targets and 52 yards in each of his last three games and has scored in each of his last two games. He's seen more deep targets (20-plus yards down the field) than any other tight end with seven of them, so even though he's caught just three of them, it leaves the opportunity for one-play upside. With Chris Godwin out of the lineup, it should allow for more targets, too. The Giants have only faced 5.7 tight end targets per game, which is one of the lowest marks in football, and have held tight ends in check for the most part. They have allowed 7.60 yards per target and a solid 65.0 percent completion-rate, but they've allowed just one touchdown to them, keeping the overall numbers down. It's not a great matchup considering just one tight end has caught more than four balls against them, but considering the surge in his play as of late, it's tough to keep him out of lineups, because if Gronk is back, he's matchup-proof.
